Ruth Armstrong in Tilshead - 11 November, 1918

from All Quiet on the Home Front, page 291:

Oh, when the end of the war came, the village went mad, I don’t think there was one person in their home. Everyone was out in the streets, and we had a lovely band in those days and they were playing, and everyone was dancing, whether they knew each other or not, and the streets were covered in decorations and Union Jacks hanging out of everybody’s windows.
